    This reader is smaller than I expected, but it works great. It is one of the few readers that supports USH-1 high speed transfers, and is less than half the price of other USH-1 readers. It is fast when used with USH-1 SD cards. No drivers to load. Card is immediately recognized when the reader is plugged in. While some might complain that it only supports SD and microSD size cards vs the many-in-one readers out there, I prefer a dedicated reader like this so I don't get lots of extra drive letters showing up in my drive list for things I will never use. I've encountered plenty of quirks with other memory card readers, but this one just works, and works well. If all you need is a reader for SD and microSD, buy this one.

    This may sound odd or defeatist, but I was surprised that this item works (and has done so, reliably, for 2 months now). Most adapters/card readers/etc, regardless of the brand or lack of same, work about half the time if you're lucky. My first version, a Sandisk, was DOA and the other (unbranded) still works about every 3rd attempt. Had accepted this "problem," but then saw this one on sale, free shipping within a larger order, and with USB 3.0. And it works, every time - which is stellar considering how lousy its colleagues seem to be.

    I needed to replace my $5, no name sd card reader from Big Lots that was corrupting data on my sd cards for my cameras. The Transcend reader was the right price, $9.99 and was also usb 3.0 compatible. I had a ten dollar coupon from Best Buy and free shipping so with tax my final cost was only 59 cents. It works great with my Acer W700 Windows tablet both plugged in direct or my powered usb 3.0 hub. Have had good luck with other computer items from Transcend Also like that you can use a micro sd card without an adapter..

    I bought this because it works with SDXC cards, but it won't read my 64GB SDXC. I've tried it on two different computers and nothing registers. I should have kept the packaging so I could return it! The only good thing was that I only wasted less than $10.50. There is nothing on the Best Buy Web site stating that it does or doesn't work with 64 GB cards, so I don't know if the problem is with the card reader in general or if I just got a bad one.

    Works great, in fact it's faster than most pc's I put it in, I bought one for my kid for school, he loved it but it came up missing so I ordered both of us one. With usb 3.0 and a 64gb samsung evo micro sd 48x it can read and write faster than the hard drive in my kids pc and the school pc's have trouble reading/writing at the max speed. well i guess the face that i bought 2 more after receiving the first one should speak for itself.

    I have just had the Transcend SD card reader for a short time; however, it has worked very well. It is flat and fits easily into my USB ports. It was ordered on-line/ phone order and delivered to my local Best Buy with NO shipping costs. So that was wonderful. It reads my SDHC card very quickly! I am pleased,

    Specification error(?)

    I was looking for memory readers and found the Transcend 3.0 model 15-RDF5K. The price ($6.99) is great; but, the specs are way out there. Height of 8.9 inches, Width of 2 FEET (24 inches), and a Depth of over 4 FEET (56 inches), yet it weighs but 18 ounces. What are the true Specs?

    I was hesitant to buy this because I didn't know if it would work with a Mac. As soon as I plugged it in to my Mac with an SD card it worked. Can't ask for anything else. Wasn't a bad price for being able to do SD and microSD.

    plug and play, blazing fast usb 3.0 speeds, so light and portable and the price is really good. The shiny plastic scratches easily but I was into this not because of the looks but because of the speed. good buy!

    I am very happy with the card reader, however, I was looking for a card reader for an older camera and thought that it would be the right size. It isn't, but I'm sure that I will be able to use the one I ordered, so plan to keep it.

    I bought this adaptor to transfer files from an SDHC card to my PC. It worked fine, no problems, and fits several different card sizes. A good product at a very reasonable price. Would purchase again.

    I bought this because my desktop computer didn't have a card reader. It is very compact in size and can be carried in a pocket very handily, plus the USB 3.0 is a lot faster than the older USB 2.0.

    My internal card reader gave up the ghost recently so I had to find an alternative. This reader works great and is easy to use. I haven't had any problems with any of the cards I've tried.

    Needed a cheap replacement USB 3.0 SD card reader. This fit the bill and works as expected. Transfers data and for 10 bucks it's a bargain.
